The Champagne cocktail, once deemed sweet and silly, is back. The sugar and bitters balance the natural acidity of sparkling wine, and the cocktail pairs very well with both creamy cheese and earthy mushrooms.

How to Make It

Step 1

Put a sugar cube into each of 6 Champagne flutes or wineglasses. Douse each cube with 1/2 tsp. bitters. Top with Champagne and serve immediately.

Chef's Notes

No reason to bust open the good stuff here. The subtle flavors and fine bubbly texture of high-quality Champagne would be lost once mixed with sugar, so feel free to use less-than-stellar sparkling wine in these cocktails.
